    I have been working at Barclays as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The working environment, is polished, quiet, and casual. This is an excellent working environment, in which there is no pressure. Very laid back atmosphere is nice.

    Cons

    The only downside to working at Barclays, is that they need to pay more money. In addition, since I am on contract, health insurance is not great, also no PTO.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, if you want them to stay. I do not like companies that are cheap. Especially large corporations, like this one who can actually afford it.
